It is exactly eleven years ago when the twin towers in New York were subjected to a dreadful terrorist attack and 9/11 will always be remembered as the day the world mourned the wickedness in man.
It will also be remembered as a day the world changed its apathy to terrorists in many countries.
Northern Ireland, Egypt, Iraq and Libya have changed. Afghanistan has a long way to go, but freedom is being brought to the people in many countries.
All those people who died in New York cannot be forgotten. Their families cannot easily forgive the tragedy…can we take from the disaster a hope for the future?
But let us also heed the warnings of the past.
Eleven years ago on the eleventh day is a sign for us to take extra care and be ever watchful. History has a habit of repeating itself…no one wants to see another expression of the evil of that day. All over the world we should remember and be cautious. Do not allow the gains made to be put in jeopardy by evil people.
They do not represent Islam. They do not represent the oppressed in the Middle-East.
After 9/11, we have learned to listen to the unhappy and the deprived in other lands. It’s time to help as well as listen.
Hilary Clinton has travelled the world listening…it’s now time to help her achieve more with communication and less violence.
History proves, ‘What has happened before can happen again’.
It’s up to us all to make sure it does not happen again.
